    J man, I am very impressed with this build. I love these fat fender fFords. I had a 42 and a 46 and had a great time with both. I wasn't brave enough to chop either of mine. You and your handsome young son look perfect in the car, enjoy my friend. Thanx for sharing your build with us. ~sololobo~

    maybe im looking at this wrong, but are those motor mounts bolted to your heads? that seems like asking for trouble. just thinking about the stress on the head bolts, the torque staying correct, blowing threw head gaskets and having to prop up the motor to pull a head seeing as the head is holding the motor up?

    i might be missing something but id rather have had said something then have you have some head bolts fail and have your bottom end laying on the ground under the car.

    I was wondering what year and model Mercedes you used for the brake setup? I'm doing a '46 and you are making it soooo much easier. Thanks. John
     
  8. hi John

    the setup came from a mercedes W124 300 diesel.
    but every mercedes setup from these years will work.

    I like what you are doing here - a nice mix of parts to build the chassis. You have a neat project!

    Yes very sorrowful that he hade A fire in his shop. Lukely he still got lots of energie to rebuild the shop and Suburban.

    Did you do the rebuild of the steering rack yourshelf? My rack is leaking also.

    Have fun Building. Diedelson
     
  15. leaking of the jaguar steeringrack is very common.
    I didn't rebuild it by myself. It's a very tricky job.
     
  16. yesterday a friend of my and I made a fast photoshop to get some inspiration.

    don't mind the mirrors and the decall on the door is just a example.

    modifications:
    some serious lowering
    3.5inch chop
    slanted doorposts
    one piece window
    lengted the front fenders a bit on the front
    wide white wall's

    what do you guys think ?

  25. hey Don

    thanks,but I allready found that one.
    I'm searching for a year now on the net for chopped tudor's and found a lot of them.
    a lot of them don't look right to me when chopped. some of them (like the blue one) look awsome.
